  • 2 ounces fresh dill (no stems ~ 1 1/2 cups)

  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • pinch black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Make Pesto:  Add all pesto ingredients to food processor or blender and blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.  Add more lemon juice if you want it tangier and add sea salt to taste.
  • Lightly salt and pepper each side of fish fillets and place in a lightly oiled or buttered baking dish. Roast (uncovered) for ~ 12-15 minutes or until fish begins to flake and is cooked through.

Things In My Kitchen:

  • Food Processor – For blendin’ up that pesto.  An 8 cup food processor is a little big for pesto, but it’s better to use that than have multiple size food processors taking up space in your kitchen.
